Policies

Reservations
  • The number of guests acceptable at each cottage is clearly stated and must be respected by the person doing the reservation.
  • Anyone exceeding the stated occupancy limit of their rental, may be asked to leave, and without any refund
  • All motel reservations are based on double occupancy. There is an additional cost for extra guests.
  • Each reservation includes a complimentary Wine Travel Card - good for free wine tastings and discounts on wine purchases at many area wineries, but not all.
  • The full cost of a reservation is charged at the time of reservation for stays less than a week. All reservations must be paid in full no later than 1 month prior to the arrival date. Therefore, all reservations made within 1 month of the arrival date - of any duration - will be charged in full at time of reservation.
Check In
Check in time is anytime after 4:00pm - Check out is 10:am - at all locations. Anyone wishing to come early or stay late must request that at the time of reservation. The cost is $25/hour.
Smoking
No smoking in any property or room. Smoking permitted outdoors.
Pets
Pets only accepted at our cottages. Where they are permitted, owners must conform to local ordinances when taking their pet outdoors - they must be within a fenced yard or on a leash. Failure to do so may incur a $250 fine.
Cancellation
Cancel any reservation, or part of a reservation by 1 month prior to the arrival date and receive full refund less $50 fee. After that date, no refunds for any reason.
Cleaning Fee
Cleaning fee at cottages is $75 - at lake view cabins it is $150. It is assumed that guests will pick up a bit before departing, including removing all food from the refrigerator and cottage, as well as taking out the trash. Please be sure only recyclables are put in the recycle bins - not in the regular trash bins. If the cottage or cabin is left in a very messy state, additional cleaning cost will be assessed.
